Are they cold cathode tubes or something else?

No cold cathodes, just LEDS. Here is the link I sent Ted: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2x48cm-C ... 2a0c7f0a2e

OK, those are neat. They look like they'd take a better beating than the neon tubes.

This post is to gauge any interest in me selling some of the Knight 3000 Heads Up Display units.
If there IS any interest I will only build five units for off road use and car shows ONLY. (Rare limited run)

Please PM or email me at taoworm23@championmustang(dot)com for price and other details.

If there is not enough interest it will remain just a one of a kind item.

Let me know guys...

Well here is KITT's new Lic. Plates.......Image I wanted what the show plates had but they would'nt give them to me. No one had them but they sad it was a bad plate???? My daughter was sad that I took of GOTHAM 3 so she asked if she could keep them, I took them off and cleaned them up and now she has it on her wall in her bedroom. They were driving behind me on Saturday and Megan called me to tell me that I had some big ass tires on the car and it looked strange not to see GOTHAM 3 on the car anymore. I wish I could see what my car looked like driving pass me on the road, the wife don't know how to drive a stick.........thank god!!!!

I tried to get 77KR117 also, but IL doesn't allow mixing numbers and letters, the number has to be to the right, after a space. So I got an Iraq medal plate that says simply KARR.

It will... It's being built now. I was looking at plates about 2 years ago. (and they never showed KARR's plate on screen)

My GT500 nose is arriving today!!! I got everything but the fog lights and the chin splitter. For the exterior, that leaves the wheels, hood, rear bumper, (maybe) stripes and (maybe) spoiler. It's going very slowly, but it's going.

I was talking to Taoworm last night on the phone and I was talking about I have had my car for 2 year this month and I started the week after I got it. So you see how far I have gotten after 2 years. I still have the rear bumper to do with maybe some more of Taoworm's products. It's in the shop now getting the stripe put on the rear bumper. I will pickup the hood lense on Wedsday. Also if anyone needs the hood lense for the opening of the hood, let me know. I have a place that makes them with Tinted plexiglass and is cut with a cnc machine. This gives you a proff. cut and looks great. I will post the price up later. This will be for the Turfiber Hoods. If you need them for a different hood, I will need a templt of the opening.
Thanks Ted

Also, if you are looking for the V6/KR rear spoiler, The Shelby Store has them for $100. factory painted plus shipping. This is a great price! Ford wants around $200 for the spoiler plus $150 to paint it.

Yeah, there's a few items I would like from Taoworm, and I always feel bad because everytime he rolls out something new, or drums up interest, I either just made a big purchase, or something else financial happens and I have to back out. It seems like it happens everytime.
